London, United Kingdom
November, 2020 During these challenging times, Webster University remains committed to global citizenship and transformative education through study abroad. While restrictions and “stay-at-home orders” gradually begin to lift around the world, COVID-19 continues to have an impact on Webster University’s global network of campuses and partners. At present, there are limitations on international travel, border entry, and student visas, which vary by country. We stand ready to adapt as needed and continue to provide global education through a variety of on ground, online and remote learning modalities; and will continue to send students abroad when travel conditions allow. As worldwide and localized response to the Coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, Webster will continue to assess the local impact on its programs and update travel policy accordingly. These directives are oriented to maintain the health and wellbeing of the entire Webster community. Throughout this process, Webster continues to promote study abroad programs to students and partner institutions. The university follows the U.S. Department of State and Center for Disease Control advisories; and, in conjunction with our international campus leadership are monitoring and assessing the safety conditions as they change and fluctuate across our global locations. All university travel policies, restrictions and guidance will be posted online here , and shared with students and partners as conditions and program statuses change. Additionally, we wanted to take the opportunity to provide some information on health and safety services for Webster study abroad participants. Webster is committed to student wellness and wellbeing and has procured an excellent student health insurance plan for study abroad through GeoBlue, a leader in global medical assistance, health benefits and safety evacuation services. Related to COVID-19, GeoBlue will cover all costs related to the treatment of the virus.

“Studying at the two Webster University campuses I chose to go to in Leiden and St. Louis were good experiences for me to see how education and social life is done in different parts of the world, the people in Leiden were more laid back while St. Louis had a more serious feel to it. It was the perfect balance looking back on it alongside my journey on the Ghana campus. I enjoyed the scenery around Leiden more with the river flowing through the city and would encourage all students who want to study abroad and take in different cultures to do so.” Nana Mark-Hansen Webster University Ghana
“My time abroad made me a more independent and confident individual. I know how to take ownership of my experience and fulfill my own expectations. I feel confident in my ability to plan out trips, acclimate to a new city, and make new friends along the way.”
“If you have the chance, take it, STUDY ABROAD! It has made me appre- ciate so much about the world, but also things at home.” Ruchii Sheth Webster University St. Louis
Thank you for your interest in our study abroad programs, we look forward to working with you!

As Switzerland’s most international city, Geneva’s spirit of international cooperation made it the ideal site for Webster’s first international campus in 1978. Home to the European headquarters for the United Nations and numerous international organizations, Geneva has a long history of diversity and tolerance. It’s humanitarian tradition began with the creation of the Red Cross, and continues today as home of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Citizens from over 175 countries reside in Geneva and as a city of only about 200,000, Geneva is frequently referred to as the world’s smallest truly global city. The Geneva campus is the most culturally diverse in Webster University’s international network and welcomes students from nearly 90 nationalities each year. Webster Geneva is a park-style campus environment located in Bellevue, Geneva within sight of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Just 8 minutes from the city’s central station by train (every 15 minutes), the campus is only a 5-minute walk from the Bellevue lake front. On campus, students will find well-equipped classrooms, a library, computer labs, cafeteria, and a student lounge which includes a game room and fitness center. FAST FACTS ABOUT GENEVA • The World Wide Web was invented in Geneva at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. It operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. • Switzerland is home to the world’s densest network of hiking trails, boasting 65,000 km of trails, barely shy of the 71,000 km of roads. Geneva is conveniently located between the Jura Mountains and the Alps. • At 140 meters, the Jet d’Eau is one of the tallest water fountains in the world and is one of Geneva’s most iconic landmarks.
HOUSING IN GENEVA All study abroad students are required to live in campus-provided housing and will be assigned to either Les Berges du Rhône, in central Geneva, or in the Living and Learning Center (LLC) on campus. Both residence halls house students from around the world and provide a comfortable living and learning environment. Les Berges du Rhône sits on a prime location within the city. The diverse and lively neighborhood makes it easy for students to discover and enjoy all that an international city like Geneva has to offer while being only 25 minutes from campus by tram and train. The Living and Learning Center is Webster Geneva’s on-campus residence and students living here have 24/7 access to on-site laundry facilities, fitness room, and the student lounge. Students who request a single room will likely reside at the LLC.
“Webster Geneva gave me what was missing at my large university campus. I found the space to take initiative by contributing to organizations, and had access to resources at the United Nations as a place for study and networking, especially at the conferences and events. I will always keep Geneva in my heart!” ALEXANDRA BELIZE Northeastern University

VIENNA AUSTRIA Waltz the Streets of Culture
CULTURAL HIGHLIGHTS AND EXCURSIONS
FAST FACTS ABOUT VIENNA • Vienna has been selected as the #1 city in Mercer’s Annual Quality of Living Rankings for the 10th year in a row (2009-2019) • Viennese coffee house culture has been inscribed on the UNESCO “Intangible Cultural Heritage” list since 2011. Often described as the city’s living room, coffee houses are a place “where time and space are consumed, but only the coffee is found on the bill.” • With numerous parks and gardens, over half of Vienna is green space making it one of the greenest cities in the world. The nearby Viennese Woods, a branch of the foothills of the Alps, offers a network of walking and hiking paths, nature reserves, and vineyards easily reachable by Vienna’s public transport system. Wiener Ball der Wissenschaften (Vienna Ball of Sciences) Experience an integral part of Viennese and Austrian culture by waltzing the night away at the Ball of Sciences, hosted at the Rathaus, Vienna’s famous city hall. Every January, the Student Resource Center partially sponsors ball tickets to promote this cultural experience to students.

CAMPUS, CULTURE & COMMUNITY
HOUSING IN VIENNA Study abroad students are housed off-campus at the The Student Hotel. TSH is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna’s beautiful second district. All rooms are single occupancy with a private bath and students will have access to a shared kitchen. The residence halls are comfortably situated within walking distance of parks, a lively residential area, several restaurants, museums, and the world-famous Prater amusement park. The Student Hotel is one stop away from campus via public transportation, approximately a 15-minute walk, or students can use one of the TSH’s bikes as part of the bicycle-share system and ride to campus in 5 minutes.
Often named one of the world’s top cities for quality of life, it is hard to find a more livable city than Vienna. Vienna is a historic city at the intersection of “old” and “new.” Here you will find a thriving center of international commerce, where the banking and business districts share the streets with the city’s famous centuries-old opera houses, cafés, magnificent palaces and the winding Danube River. Located in Central Europe, students will be exposed to multicultural living and learning at its best. Established in 1981, Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU) is located in the beautiful Palais Wenkheim, conveniently located in Vienna’s second district, just a few steps away from the city center. Built in 1826, the neoclassical building features tremendous architectural detailing, both interior and exterior. The building was completely renovated and transformed into a modern site for academic and operational excellence in 2014. The Vienna campus offers modern and interactive classrooms, computer labs, the Library and Learning Center, and plenty of places throughout the building for students to meet, study and relax. In the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience and Behavior Lab, students have the opportunity to study various behavioral measures as well as record brain activities (EEG), conduct startle reflex modulation studies (to quantify emotion) and investigate facial expressions via facial electromyography (FEMG). Webster Vienna is a truly international community representing 70 different nationalities and faculty and staff from over 20 countries. Classrooms are smaller and typically range from 10-20 students in a classroom.
“Once I arrived I soon realized how easy it was to acclimate to campus life in Vienna. The professors were so helpful, and even though I was in a huge city, campus felt like a small community. I immediately looked for ways to get involved on campus, and that’s when I joined the student government. It was a really exciting way to meet full-time students and help get really connected to the campus during my time there. Vienna itself was always alive with
things to do. I’d wake up, go to class and always have something exciting planned for after. I loved feeling like a tourist and local all at once in Vienna. By the time I left, I had made so many friends and connections it was hard to leave.

FAST FACTS ABOUT LEIDEN • The city of Leiden will be the “European City of Science” for the year 2022. The theme of the 2022 biennial multidisciplinary science convention is ‘Science, the inexhaustible source of discoveries’ which connects perfectly to the city’s motto which is ‘Leiden, City of Discoveries’”. • At least 9 American presidents, including President Barack Obama, are descendants of the Pilgrim Fathers, a group of English puritan protestants who fled to Leiden after a conflict with the Church of England. • Leiden has over 2,800 monuments, making the city one large open-air museum. One Billion Rising Flash Mob Since 2013, Webster Leiden has organized and mobilized students, faculty, staff and members of area women’s groups to participate in a flash mob each February in support of The One Billion Rising campaign, the largest mass action to end vilence against women. Webster’s Got Talent and Football Tournament In February each year, students have the opportunity to showcase their talents to the entire Webster Leiden community. It’s a fun event for all, but the top two winners move on to compete in the Webster’s Got Talent finale which rotates between our Geneva, Leiden and Vienna campuses each April. The European Football Tournament is held during the same weekend with teams from each campus competing for the coveted European trophy. King’s Day Celebration April 27 is King’s Day (Koningsdag), a national holiday in the Netherlands that celebrates the birth of King Willem-Alexander. Celebrations include parties, the display of local customs and traditional clothing, live music and dancing, and various flea markets. Don’t forget to wear orange! 3 October Festival The 3 October Festival (Leiden Ontzet) celebrates the liberation of Leiden on October 3, 1574 and was declared an official city holiday in 1886. The day is marked by parades, fairs, and fireworks.

CAMPUS, CULTURE & COMMUNITY
As the oldest and largest university town in the Netherlands, Leiden has earned the right to be called the “Key to Discovery”. It is a student-centered and intellectually rich community where bicycling is the favorite means of travel. Established in 1983, Webster’s Leiden campus represents 50 nationalities and its staff and educators are fully committed to providing a multicultural academic experience. Its small class sizes (on average just 10 students) ensures personalized learning. The campus includes state-of-the-art classrooms and computer facilities, a library and student lounge. Webster Leiden sits in the historic city center on a picturesque canal. A multitude of shops, bakeries, historic sites and museums can be found within mere footsteps from its main entrance. Leiden’s numerous cozy cafes are also great places to catch up on some assigned reading or simply enjoy a leisurely afternoon lunch. After dark, Leiden’s taverns, theaters, and music venues spring to life.
HOUSING IN LEIDEN
Students at Webster Leiden live in the Living and Learning Center (LLC) which is located just across the street from the main campus building, approximately two minutes by foot. Built in 1929, the LLC exhibits gorgeous “Delft-style” architecture right in the heart of the old city center. The building consists of 50 single and double occupancy apartments, each with a kitchenette and private bath. The LLC also provides plenty of space for students to relax including a private courtyard and student lounge.
“As winter turned to spring, the flowers of the Netherlands blossomed, the canals filled with boats, and I felt at home. The culture, the ease of transportation, and the proximity to other amazing destinations made my time studying abroad a wonderful experience.” ISAAC KNOPF Webster University St. Louis
“One thing I love about living in Leiden is that I adapted very quickly and it’s like a second home to me. I would tell other students considering the Leiden campus to ‘go, you’ll love it!’. I love it here and do not want to leave!” GILLIAN KENNEY Sacred Heart University

"I like that Webster Leiden is located right in the heart of the city and it was easy to get around and explore the city, especially after getting a bike. I also liked getting to know the people here as well. My most memorable experience was going to the tulip fields with Jill and Drew, biking all the way there and seeing all the tulips in bloom."

“I was inspired to go abroad by my love of travel and experiencing new things. My study abroad experience in Leiden could not have gone better. I got to experience other cultures, meet many new people, and see many new places. And because of all those new experiences I am a new person. If you’re able to study abroad, I definitely recommend it.”
